Comprehensive Martial Arts Book


I am looking for a book that includes information about most or all (if possible martial) arts in the world, I know its a stretch but an extra bonus would be if it included the various techniques in each different MA.

I think finding all of this in one single magic pocket handbook is too much to ask for, I don't mind a series of books though either.

I'm not implying that I want to learn everything from a book (I go to MMA) I just think it would be cool (as a MA student) to be able to compare the different styles (and hopefully) maybe incorporate some techniques to my own game.

Thanks in advance!



you'll need a bittorrent program, if you unfamiliar with the technology go here.


It's hardly 1 book, but, its a gabillion.


600 books? HAHAHAHAHA That would take years to read!


pretty much, there's probably some good books in there and some crappy ones, you could sort through and just read the ones that interest you.

On a sidenote to anyone who does download, books like these are usually in .pdf format and use adobe reader, which in itself makes me not want to read them, do yourself a favor and download foxit, its free and works a billion times better and faster.

And the download times for that much isn't as bad as you'd think, I got 485 physics books in around 5 hours.
